I'm looking at starting to offer Spa Parties for both bridal groups and for birthday parties as well. Are there any other Spa's offering these services?  What equipment do you use, what has worked for you?  I have a second massage therapist and an esthetician, so I can offer all of the usual services, mani/pedi, facials, massages, makeup.  I'm looking for some advice on getting started so I don't have to completely reinvent the wheel here.ThanksSee More
